UV RACE “Malaria” EP (S-S)
I've had these tunes for a while on my computer, and regularly listen to them on my iPod when I'm out on the field sandblasting, driving the forklift, and lugging around paint tins for the old man. There's four of them on this EP, each a great slice of creem'd electric eel as performed by some Aussie blokes and a couple Aussie girls, hot out in the sun with fluoro orange sunblock on. 'Malaria' is a wild bacteria ridden specimen, with vocalist Marcus yodelling incoherently over a slippery White Light/White Heat guitar line. 'Cosmic Man' is a synthy number reminiscent of SF's Crime playing on the set of Kingswood Country...IN SPACE.
'MASH' and 'Good Money' are the hits here; rollicking sing-along anthems for Australia's idiot youth.
A robust, matured effort.
